- Go in a vehicle with some ground clearance. A Subaru Forester is good enough (if you know when to turn back)
- Have Chains or Snow Tires.
- Practice putting your chains on.
- Have gloves, flashlight, and tarp for assisting in putting on the chains (the tarp is to sit on in the snow).
- Have several layers of clothing with an outside waterproof layer. It has rained on me in January up there before.
- Get a Map.
- Don't trust your Smart Phone (very spotty coverage, and it could be raining).
- Have a set of dry clothes to put on at the end.
- Have a big black trash bag for the wet stuff at the end.
- Don't do this one alone unless the weather really is perfect. It is so easy to slip and fall on snow.
- Oh, and a get a snow park pass from REI the day before. 3 bucks.
